Today’s post is quite special, as is part of a project I’ve been involved in for a little while now! The project is of Nori (from Read Write Love)’s creation, and is called the Book Blogger Creativity project. Whilst I’m not technically a book blogger, I am a blogger and I often post bookish things, so when I heard about it, I just had to join! I’m part of the team called The Hot Chocolates, hence the name for this feature!
For In the Hot Seat with the Hot Chocolates, our team have devised a list of questions for us all to answer! So, without further ado, here are my answers!
Questions from Olivia @ The Candid Cover:
Are you a fan of book-to-movie adaptations? If so, which is your favourite?
If they are done well, yes, absolutely! I love being able to see worlds I love come to life on screen! It just annoys me when they miss out SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YES I’M LOOKING AT YOU HARRY POTTER
Do you ever have crushes on characters in books? Who is your current crush?
Does this make me not normal? 😁
Questions from Elizabeth @ Thoughts from an Evil Overlord
How long does it take you to pull together a review after you’ve read the book?
But seriously, I can’t review stuff unless I take MOUNTAINS of notes. Which is what I’m doing at the moment whilst reading Wuthering Heights for school. So I guess we’ll see how long that takes.
Do you read ahead or skip certain elements in a book? Why?
Hardly ever! Although I did skip ahead when a certain character had a rather confusing death in Harry Potter to desperately try and
make them not dead find out if they were actually dead or not. They were, unfortunately (*cries forevermore*)
Questions from Milka @ Read.Read.Read.
Which book would you like to see turned into a film or a TV series? Who would you cast for the roles of the main characters?
OOOOOOH I DON’T KNOW! Can’t I just say ALL THE BOOKS? And they’d have to be done well. Therefore the actors would need to be amazing!
Which fictional character would you like to go on a date with? What would you do?
Hmmm, like I said earlier, I never really get fictional crushes, so I can’t really answer this one. Oopsie!
Questions from Kat @ Books and Sensibility
What is the last book you pre-ordered or purchased the day it came out?
I don’t know. It might have been Sweet Honey by Cathy Cassidy, which I still need to read, actually. After the 5 books I’m currently reading at the same time, of course.
Which author do you think is amazing that you feel l like doesn’t get enough love?
ALL THE AUTHORS!
Seriously, it takes a lot of time, effort and perseverance to write a book, and even more to get it published, so authors, I applaud you. *squishy hugs all the authors*
Questions from Alice @ Alice’s Book Vault
What book, if there is one, has given you the worst book hangover?
The Harry Potter series. I WILL NEVER GET OVER THEM! NEVER!
What series do you wish would never end? That you could always get more of?
HARRY POTTER AGAIN. ALWAYS HARRY POTTER.
Questions from Wesaun @ Oreos and Books
If you had to face your biggest fear or fears with a character to be your guide along the way, which would you choose?
Probably Hermione. She’s logical AND awesome. Also magic.
What’s a book that would inspire you to do a cosplay/nail art/clothing/other? Why?
HARRY POTTER OBVS
(There’s kind of a running theme here, don’t you think? :P)
Questions from Brittany @ The Passionate Bookworms
What is the last book you DNF’d? At what point did you stop and why?
Pride and Prejudice. I just couldn’t really get into it, but I didn’t get far anyway. Ah well!
What do you think the next trend of books will be? For a long while it was dystopian, what is your prediction for the next big genre?
Like Olivia said in her post, I think Fantasy (as in like magic and dragons and awesomeness) is fairly big right now. And let’s face it, who doesn’t love being transported to another world when reading?
Questions from Nori @ Read Write Love
If you could visit any world in any book, which world would you visit?
The wizarding world from Harry Potter, of course!
Who is your book boyfriend/girlfriend OR what character do you think could be your best friend?
I’m going to go for the best friend one, and I’ll say possibly Neville or Luna from, again, Harry Potter. They are both quirky and don’t really fit in with everyone else, so I’d love to be friends with them!
Questions from Tee @ Me, Books and the Internet
Which book character do you think you’re most like? Why?
Neville Longbottom. I’m clumsy, awkward and forgetful, but people don’t seem to mind me despite all this!
Have you ever read a book that had a moment that happened to you in real life? If, what book and what moment?
Not that I can think of right now!
Questions from Elly @ A Hufflepuff’s Thoughts (That’s me!)
Choose one shelf from your bookshelf. What does it look like? (take a picture)
On this shelf, there are books by Jacqueline Wilson, Michael Morpurgo, Beatrix Potter, Veronica Roth (Divergent, above the Michael Morpurgo ones), Anne Frank, Cathy Cassidy (I won this one!) and L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables + Anne of Avonlea), some of which I still haven’t read!
If you could have any animal/ non-human character from any book, who/what would you choose and why?
Or Hedwig. Both are adorable!
Those are my answers! Be sure to look out for everyone else’s posts! Kat @ Books and Sensibility is tomorrow!
If you want to have a go too, please feel free to leave your post in the linky below, and/or leave a comment for me to check it out!
